Death Wish meets Firestarter in a provocative mystery thriller set in Tokyo.

Young, pretty Junko Aoki was born with the gift of pyrokinesis—the ability to start fires using just willpower. When the police and law courts fail, Junko mobilizes her talent to bring violent criminals to justice.

A chance encounter sends her on a mission to rescue a young woman abducted by a vicious gang. The trail of bodies Junko leaves across Tokyo attracts the unwanted attention of two very different groups: a secretive vigilante league known as the Guardians and the arson squad of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department.

Detective Chikako Ishizu's initial bafflement turns to surprise as she is forced to reconsider a lifetime of methodical thinking while wrestling with the growing mountain of evidence on Junko's pyrokinetic skills. Hardly able to keep up with Junko's killing spree, Detective Ishizu finds herself drawn deeper into a case that defies belief.

Meanwhile, as Junnko's crusade against evil gains momentum, she finds it increasingly difficult to control her power over life and death, and innocent people are getting caught in the crossfire.
